I call this picture Glory. It is actually only the beginning of a prophetic picture. Later, I added more colors and shapes to complete the picture.
I am showing you this first part because it reminds me of how we, as Christians, are being changed from glory to glory by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are becoming transformed as we submit to God’s will. Sometimes our changes are dramatic, but often we change little by little, bit by bit.
Even though today, we are not yet who we will become, we are still beautiful in God’s eyes. Today we are seated in heavenly places with Jesus.
God knows it takes time to change, to renew our minds, to build our character. He will give us the strength to persevere through our trials as we submit to His will and press on toward the prize, our reward in heavenly glory. He waits for us. He gives us the hope we need and renews our strength so we can fly, fly high. God is the God of hope.
Sometimes we don’t feel complete. We feel broken. We wonder, “How long, Oh Lord!”
When you are faced with broken pieces, turn to face Jesus. Catch His vision.
Hold onto God. Trust Him. He is faithful to complete the work He began in you.
